Is it -
a) effective
b) reasonably priced
c) simple to instal? (I mean it is just a matter of taking out the present headlamp unit, putting this in its place and attaching the plug? Or is is more complicated, involving a ballast)
Don't buy any of these contraptions.Infact this FC UNIT poser has stolen my car's picture

There are two brands called "Eagle eye" and "auto connection " which have two models, one is Range Roverish and the other one is two U's
Both models also have low beam projector and high beam halogen.
Will share some pics.

Eagle eye is a direct plug and play, no tampering of any kind.

Thanks a lot for that info.
What is the kind of pricing for Eagle Eye? And sourcing?

2013 Ford Ecosport Titanium TDCi
Abruptly caught fire last week in the parking lot of Inorbit mall parking lot, Vashi and the owner stood recording a video of the same.
The engine bay is completely burnt down. But the interiors is totally unaffected.
The front glass was broken as a precaution.
The reason is not yet known as Ford is currently conducting its investigation at a service centre in Mumbai.


I too own a Ecosport TDCi of the same model year and the ownership experience has been completely safe and satisfactory till date! This though seems to be a one off instance.

They are available at all reputed Auto accessory stores across the country.
Eagle eye makes these kind of headlamps/tail lamps for almost all the car brands available in India

Default Gurus - PLEASE help! Ford Ecosport EcoBoost Gearbox ??

Hi !
PLEASE, somebody give me details on the Manual Transmission box of the INDIAN Ecosport EcoBoost!

I pray it is not this box - 5MTT170
http://www.getrag.com/en/products/ma...smissions.html

Max. Torque Capacity 170 Nm !
The superchips remap gives 256nm and 156 bhp.... I was seriously counting on that!
I thought that the clutch would be the limiting factor - not the actual transmission!

Please help me understand this!
Thank You!

Guys,
Need help regarding reterofitment/addition of auto folding ORVM function

Does the 2016 model Ecosport have this feature?
I remember both the Fiesta and Figo Aspire having it.

Thanks

Nope even the new 2016 Ecosport doesn't have this feature. Infact it's not even there in international variants of the Ecosport.

Congratulations

Very interesting decision, buying a 3 year old Ecosport instead of the all new Brezza.
Comparitively,,6 airbags is the only additional feature extra in the Ecosport.

Curious to know what tipped the scale towards the blue oval ?

Congratulations. I respect the choice. Better driving pleasure, better all-round quality and safety levels. So what if the brezza is new, huh? I personally too think the Blue Oval is miles ahead as a better automobile. No skimping on important stuff here.

Just visited Automall in Cochin (Edapally). They have a Taiwanese set - (Eagle Eyes) available (pic attached). Quoting 25000/- after discount (MRP 28500/-) for plug and play installation using my existing bulbs. If HIDs/ballast to be included, price goes up by 9000/- ie a total of 34000/-.
Is this reasonable?

Perfect,very reasonable.
Make sure you get a 4200 K HID'S bulbs, I am saying this because aftermarket guys usually recommend 6000K which are useless.

Did you get to check the Range Roverish model too?
